Thanks for the link but that's for an iOS 10.2 or earlier. I just need to remove my card from the payment method system

No, you aren't reading or correctly. I made the same mistake myself. It states "if you want to remove your payment information".... and that applies to any iOS version that you are running. The section about using iOS 10.2 or earlier would apply to changing payment information - not removing it.
Give this a try. I tried it myself and I am running iOS 10.3.3.
If you want to remove your payment information, or if you're using iOS 10.2 or earlier : Tap Settings > iTunes & App Store. Tap your Apple ID , then tap View Apple ID. You might need to sign in . Tap Payment Information. Change or remove your information. To remove your payment method, select None. Get help if you don't see None or can't select it . Tap Done. If you change your payment method to a credit card, the iTunes Store places a temporary authorization hold on your credit card to verify your updated account information.

Can’t See “None” When Editing Apple ID Payment Information?
Let’s put it straight, there are several reasons why you can’t see None when editing your Apple ID payment information. It has too many strings attached hence; you will have to first clear them out before getting to the root of the issue.
Even if you don’t have any payment due, you won’t be able to select None while updating your Apple ID payment information. To clear all the doubts, check out why it happens and what you need to do to choose nil without any hassle.
Can’t Find “None” Option in Apple ID Payment Information
Reason #1. if you have payment due or unpaid balance.
You won’t be able to choose None as your payment type until you have paid your balance.
Solution: Don’t know which order you have to pay? Head over to this quick guide to viewing your purchase history on your iOS device.
When you log in to the store, you might receive a message saying “There was a billing issue with your last order.” You can click the Billing Info button to view the order.
Once you have paid for the order, you will be allowed to change your payment information to None.
Reason #2. If you have a subscription that renews Automatically
Have you a subscription that renews automatically? You need to first cancel it to be able to choose None.
Solution: In case the subscription offers a free trial, Apple uses your selected payment method so that your service won’t come to a halt after the termination of the free trial. You can easily cancel the subscription to prevent any charges.
Reason #3. If you aren’t living in the country or region you’re creating an Apple ID for
You won’t be allowed to select None if you aren’t living in the country or region you’re creating an Apple ID for. For instance, if you are living in Canada, you are you’re creating an Apple ID with a billing address in the UK, you can’t select None as the payment method.
Reason #4. If you changed your country or region
If you change the country or region of an existing Apple ID, you need to provide a payment method and update your billing options. Else, you won’t be allowed to use gift cards or store credit as your payment method.
Solution: If you wish to remove your payment method once you have changed the country or region, you will be able to change your payment information to None.
Reason #5. If you are part of a Family Sharing
Ensure that you are not part of a Family Sharing group as you can’t select None until you have left it.
On your iOS device:
Step #1. Launch Settings → [your name] → Family Sharing. ( Note: If your iPhone is running iOS 10.2 or earlier, go to Settings → iCloud → Family.)
Step #2. Now, Tap [your name] and select Stop(if you are an organizer)/Leave Family(if you are a member.)
On your Mac:
Step #1. First off, you need to click on Apple menu → Click on System Preferences.
Step #2. Click on iCloud.
Step #3. Click on Manage Family.
Step #4. Click on [your name] and then select the Remove (—) button in the bottom-left corner or click on Stop Family Sharing.
Reason #6. Can’t choose None, if you are using the iTunes Store or App Store for the first time
You can’t select None if you are using App Store or iTunes Store for the first time with an existing Apple ID.
Solution: You need to first provide a payment method. Once you have created your account, you will be able to change your payment information to None.
Check out the four important things:
- Don’t get angry to receive a charge on your bank, credit card, or debit statement, it might be due to Family Sharing purchases, subscriptions, or your payment method attached to a different Apple ID
- Setting up an Apple ID for the first time and don’t want to set up payment options? Open the App Store app → select free app → tap on Get → When asked to sign in with an Apple ID, tap Create New Apple ID → Go ahead with the onscreen instructions → None when you are asked to select a payment method
- You can’t see None option when using the Apple ID account page to set your payment method
- If you no longer want to keep your Apple ID payment information, you can easily remove it. Open Settings app on your iOS device → [your name] → Payment & Shipping → Payment Method. Now, edit your payment details. To remove your payment method or change to a different payment method, head over to the bottom of the Payment Details screen and tap Change Payment Method. Next, you need to select None or a different payment method
That’s pretty much it!

How To Select The ‘None’ Payment Option In iOS
- User by Fatima Wahab
- Calendar Dec 26, 2017
- Comment No Comments
The App Store created a new type of market when it was first introduced. Many other companies have followed in its example. Both Google and Microsoft have their own app stores and like the Apple App Store, they not only sell apps but also music and movies. As great as it is, it does still have trouble with payments. Sometimes, payments don’t go through and credit cards that have worked in the past stop working altogether. We’ve all seen the ‘ Your payment method was declined ‘ error and one possible way to resolve it is to remove and add a credit card again. To do this, you have to select the ‘None’ payment option in iOS and it doesn’t appear for everyone, for some reason. Here’s how to select the ‘None’ payment option in iOS.
Select The ‘None’ Payment Option
Apple has recently moved this particular option in iOS and it’s for the better. In earlier versions of iOS, this option appeared at the top of the screen where users entered their billing information. Often, it didn’t appear at all.
To select the ‘None’ payment option, open the Settings app and tap your Apple ID at the top. Select Payment & Shipping.
On the Payment & Shipping screen, tap ‘Payment Method’. On the Payment Method screen, scroll all the way down, and select the ‘Switch to None’ option. It might take a few seconds for it to update but this works flawlessly otherwise.
The iTunes app for macOS and Windows lets you edit your payment information as well. It too has the ‘None’ payment option but again, in some cases, it doesn’t appear for some users so this is a reasonable alternative.
While this works if you’ve cleared all your bills with the App Store i.e. no payments are pending or have failed, it may not work if you have a pending payment. If that’s the case, you will need to use a different credit card, paypal account, or iTunes gift card to clear the bill associated with your account before you can select the ‘None’ payment option.
If your credit card is simply being declined, this ought to work. It will remove the payment information across all devices. The payment method is associated with your Apple ID so it will be removed from every device that uses that same ID. It doesn’t matter if the device is an iPhone, an iPad, or a Mac. It will also be removed from the iTunes app on macOS and Windows.

How to change Apple ID payment info on iPhone, iPad, iPod, Mac & PC
How do I change the payment information attached to my Apple ID account? And is it possible to use an Apple ID without any payment info at all – no credit or debit card or whatever?
It’s tricky to own and use an iPhone or iPad without an Apple ID; your Apple identity is a critical element in the company’s efforts to unify your experience across multiple apps and even devices. (It’s so fundamental a part of the package that iOS will urge you to sign into or create an Apple ID while you’re setting it up for the first time.)
More importantly for many users, your Apple ID is tied to payment information; with Apple acting as a trusted financial gatekeeper, users feel confident buying apps, books and other media through iOS’s various portals, and those portals are able to be frictionless because they don’t all have to ask for your payment details separately.
If the payment information associated with your Apple ID is out of date or mistaken, you’ll want to correct it, which is what we’ll be looking at in this tutorial. Read on to find out how to change Apple ID payment information associated with an Apple ID.
Read next: How to change or reset Apple ID | How to unlock a disabled Apple ID
How to change Apple ID payment information: On iPad, iPhone & iPod touch
You can easily change your Apple ID account’s payment details on an iOS device. Open the Settings apps and select iTunes & App Store. Tap your Apple ID (which will be listed at the top), and then View Apple ID. At this point it is likely that you’ll be asked to verify your identity by entering a password or Touch ID.
Next, select Payment Information, and review the details stored here. Select and edit any information that is wrong or needs to be changed. When you’ve finished, tap Done.
A quick warning: changes to the associated card may result in a temporary delay to payments – Apple states that changing your payment method to a credit card will result in the iTunes Store, App Store and so on putting “a temporary authorisation hold on your credit card to verify your updated account information”.
How to remove payment details from your Apple ID account
If you want to remove payment details from the Apple ID entirely, instead of just switching to a different card, select None under Payment Type. You can continue to use an Apple ID with no payment details attached to it, as we explain below.
How to change Apple ID payment information: On Mac (and PC)
On Mac and PC alike, Apple ID account information and settings are handled through iTunes.
Open iTunes and sign into the correct account, then select Account (from the menu along the top) and View My Account. You’ll be asked for your password; enter this and hit Return.
You’ll now see your Account Information. Look for an entry titled Payment Type or Payment Information; just to the right of this there will be an Edit button. Click this, then remove the information by selecting None.

How to change Apple ID payment information: How to use an Apple ID without a debit or credit card
Apple is a widely trusted company – its reputation is part of the reason why Apple users are so happy to purchase apps and media through its portals via stored debit and credit cards – but some people aren’t happy with the idea of a company having their payment details. Fortunately, it’s entirely possible to create an Apple ID with no payment method attached, and to only download free apps and media.
If you’ve already set up an Apple ID, you can simply remove the payment method, as we explained above – make sure you do so after signing into the App Store or similar for the first time. Apple’s portals won’t trouble you for a payment method until and unless you try to buy something (that isn’t free).
If you haven’t got an Apple ID but just want to download free apps, things are slightly more complicated. You will have to create an Apple ID account – the App Store will insist that you do this when you try to make the download, even though it’s free – but it’s easy to create a new Apple ID with no payment information associated.
In the next couple of sections we explain the simple steps required to get round this stumbling block.
How to create an Apple ID with no debit or credit card: iPhone/iPad
Assuming you’re doing this in order to download free apps and media, you just need to carry on as you were. Visit the App Store or whatever, then tap ‘Get’ next to the free app, book, song or other media. (Paid-for apps have the price here. ‘Get’ is a compromise term for free apps.)
At this point you will be asked to sign in with an Apple ID. Instead, select Create New Apple ID, then follow the instructions to generate your Apple ID. This is generally simple and self-explanatory, until we get to the section for payment methods. You need to select None.
There’s a final email verification stage before you can use the Apple ID for downloading apps and media.
How to create an Apple ID with no debit or credit card: Mac (and PC)
The procedure is roughly the same on Mac as on iPhone: as before, the easiest method is to try to download a free app or song, then create an Apple ID when prompted (and remember to select None as the payment method).
We’ll use iTunes for this process (although on Mac you could also use the Mac App Store app). Open iTunes. Whether you’ve selected Music, Movies, TV Shows, Podcasts or Apps in the dropdown menu at the top left, there will be a link to a store on the right of the options below the Now Playing window. But because we need to find something free to download, and this is much easier on the App Store – where there are more freebies than paid-for apps – let’s select Apps from the dropdown menu, then App Store on the right of the menu of options.
Before we find that freebie, we need to make sure we’re in the right store. Scroll down to the very bottom of the store, and look for a little circular flag at the bottom right corner. This should correspond to the country you’re in, and will dictate the country that your Apple ID will be connected to. If you want to change this, click the flag and select a different country.
Now to find something free. Any app listed on the App Store front page that doesn’t have a price underneath is free – see what we mean about there being a lot of freebies? Alternatively, just select something from the TOP FREE APPS chart on the righthand side, and click Get. Or download Super Mario Run – that’s free.
As on the iDevices, you’ll be prompted to sign in with an Apple ID as soon as you click Get. Choose Create Apple ID instead, follow the instructions to make a new ID, and select None as the payment type when prompted.
How to add PayPal to your Apple ID payment information
Recently Apple added the ability to add your PayPal account as a method of payment to your Apple ID along with credit or debit card (it is only available in select regions).
This is another good way of avoiding having your credit or debit card information on file with Apple and allows you to pay for App Store purchases, Apple Music, movies, books and iCloud storage with PayPal.
To set it up on iPhone, go to Settings then tap your name at the top to go to Apple ID. Then tap:
iTunes & App Store > Apple ID: > View Apple ID > Payment information > PayPal
From here tap Sign in to PayPal, where you can then enter your username and password to connect the service to your iPhone.
The exception to all this is Family Sharing. Organisers of Family Sharing groups do have to set up a payment method and cannot select None.

How to remove card from iTunes & App Store: Delete credit card or debit card details associated with Apple ID
How do I remove my credit card details from iTunes?
When you sign up with iTunes Store (or the App Store), you have to give Apple your bank card or credit card details. Many users ask us how to get rid of these card details so that Apple cannot access them any more.
Maybe you want to replace your credit card with a different one, or you just want to make sure you don’t end up spending money with Apple. (Or that nobody you pass the iPhone to, such as children or grandchildren , can spend money.)
Either way, it’s reasonably easy to remove your card details from iTunes. Your card details are linked to your Apple ID, and you can change or remove your Apple ID payment information directly on your iPhone or iPad, or by using iTunes on your Mac.
Read next: How to change/reset/delete Apple ID
How to remove card details from iTunes: iPhone or iPad
You remove your bank card from iTunes on an iOS device in Settings:
- Tap Settings.
- Open iTunes & App Store.
- Tap your Apple ID (typically your email address at the top of the screen).
- Tap View Apple ID.
- Tap Payment Information.
- Tap None under Payment Type.
This will rmove your card details from your Apple ID. Note that you won’t be able to make purchases, download apps or make in-app purchases until you repeat the process but choose a card type under Payment Type (and enter your card details.)
How to remove card details from iTunes: Mac
If you’re using an Apple Mac computer, you remove your card details from iTunes using the iTunes app:
- Open iTunes.
- Sign in with your Apple ID (if you aren’t signed in already, then choose Account > Sign In).
- Choose Account > View My Account.
- Enter your Apple ID and Password and press Return.
- Click Edit to the right of Payment Type.
- Select None next to Payment Method.
- Click Done.
You will no longer be able to make purchases from iTunes, download Mac or iOS paid-for apps, and won’t be able to make in-app purchases.
If you’re planning to sell your iPhone, iPad or Mac (see How to sell an iPhone and How to sell a Mac ), you should remove your Apple ID account from the device, and reset it (rather than removing your card details.) For instructions, see: How to reset an iPhone | How to reset a Mac .

Enable Missing None Option On Apple ID Payment Information Screen
By: Waseem Patwegar
There are many reasons as to why you are unable to see the “None” option on Apple ID payment information screen. Once you know the reason, you should be able to enable the missing None option on Apple ID Payment information screen.
Missing None Option On Apple ID Payment Information Screen
If the “None” option is missing on Apple ID billing and payment information screen, you won’t be able to create Apple ID without Credit card or remove your existing Credit card information from Apple ID.
On its website Apple provides the circumstances in which the “None” payment option gets removed or becomes unavailable on Apple ID Payment information screen.
- If You are using Family Sharing
- You have unpaid balance or payments due
- You have subscribed to services that automatically renew
- If you are Using iTunes or App Store For the First Time
- You are trying to change Country or Region
- You are not located in a Country where you are trying to create an Apple ID.
Once you find out the reason for the “None” payment option being unavailable, it becomes easy to Enable the missing None option on Apple ID Payment information screen.
1. Disable Family Sharing
The most common reason for the “None” option being unavailable on Apple ID payment information screen is due to Family Sharing option being enabled on iPhone or due to your iPhone being a part of Apple’s Family Sharing program.
1. Open Settings > tap on your Apple ID Name > Family Sharing > On Family Sharing screen, tap on your Name
2. On the next screen, tap on Stop Family Sharing option.
Note: If you are an organizer you will see “Stop Family Sharing” and if you are a member you will see “Leave Family Sharing” option.
2. Check Unpaid Balance and Pending Payments
You won’t see the “None” payment option, if you have an unpaid balance or payment for an Apple Service has become due.
Hence, take a look at your Purchase History on the App Store and see if there is any unpaid balance on your account. Once, the unpaid balance is cleared, the “None” payment option will become available for selection.
1. Open Settings > tap on your Name > On the next screen, tap on Media & Purchases .
2. On the pop-up, select View Account option > on the next screen, scroll down and tap on Purchase History .
3. On the next screen, you will be able to see whether or not you have any pending dues.
Note: In case of Family Sharing, you won’t be able to see what other family members have bought.
3. Cancel Subscriptions
If you have a subscription for an Apple Service like Apple Music or In-App subscriptions for content services like Netflix, Spotify and others, you won’t be able to access the “None” payment option.
You will be able select the “None” option only when you cancel your subscription for these services.
4. Using App Store Or iTunes For the First Time
You won’t see the “None” payment option, if you are trying to use the App Store for the first time.
Since, the App Store contains paid Apps and services, Apple prompts you to provide Credit Card information in order to be able to purchase paid Apps and services.
Once you create an Apple ID you will be able to change payment information to None. In this regard, you might be interested in reading: How to Create Apple ID without Credit Card .
5. You are Trying to Change Country Or Region
When you try to change Country or Region in your Apple ID, you will be required to provide a payment method and update your billing information.
After changing country or region, you will be able to choose the “None” option and remove your payment method.
6. You Are Not Located in a Country Where You are Creating the Apple ID
If you are creating an Apple ID for the first time, and you are not physically located in the region or Country where you are creating the Apple ID, you will be required to enter a payment method.
For example, if you are located in the United States and are trying to create an Apple ID with a billing address in Dubai, you won’t be able to choose “None” as payment method.

No None option when setting up Apple ID payment?
By Elizabeth Jones 4 comments Last updated March 17, 2020
Are you trying to remove a credit card, debit card, PayPal, or another payment method from Apple ID but there’s no none option? Here’s why!
A lot of folks want to create an Apple ID without any payment information (i.e., credit or debit card.) And it’s usually easy to do.
However, there are circumstances where it’s not allowed. But often, Apple doesn’t provide you a reason–the None button just isn’t there!
So if you’re wondering how to remove a payment method from iPhone, read on!
To learn how to set-up an Apple ID without a payment method or want to know how to remove a credit card from an existing Apple ID, see this article .
No none option when setting up apple id are you part of a family, have any subscriptions, the first time matters, and if you’re moving to a new country, not sure if you owe anything , still no none option, how to get the none option for your apple id payment method.
- Pay off any unpaid balances or payment due on the App, Music, TV, Books and iTunes Stores
- Cancel any on-going subscriptions, including Apple Music, AppleTV+, Apple Arcade, and so forth
- First-time users of Apple’s Stores (iTunes, App, Music, TV, Books, etc.) are required to provide a payment method–change this after your first purchase (including any item that’s free)
- You must be physically located in your billing addresses country/region when you create an Apple ID. If you’re located elsewhere, you must enter a payment method
- When you change your Apple ID’s region or country, you must provide a payment method–change this later, after your first purchase
- Family Sharing always requires a payment method for the Family Organizer
- All child accounts (for those younger than 18) require a payment method
- Want to change your iCloud payment method? Here’s how to do It
- How to change or remove payment information from App Store
- How do I take a credit card off my Apple ID?
- Create an Apple ID without a credit card?
And if you’re setting up an account for your children or a child in your care under age 13, a credit card is always required to set up any Apple ID accounts for children.
There’s no getting around this one, I’m afraid.
If you subscribe to anything with regular payment cycles (like monthly) or that renew automatically, you cannot choose None as a payment option.
Even free trials require a payment method.
Why? Because after that trial period you must pay for services, so your payment method on file means a seamless transition between free trial period and paid subscription start date.
If you still want to change your payment method to None, you must first cancel the subscription .
Also, the Family Sharing organizer can’t cancel subscriptions for other family members.
Only devices with that family member’s Apple ID can cancel associated subscriptions.
Have an Apple ID already but using it on Apple’s Store for the first time?
Well, If you’re using an existing Apple ID and never before purchased something via the Stores, you must provide a payment method for that first purchase.
But there’s good news!
Location, Location, Location!
That None payment option only shows up when you are in your country of residence (i.e., the country that matches your billing address.)
So if you’re traveling for pleasure or business, working overseas for a short time, or spending a semester in another nation, you must provide payment information.
And you won’t be able to choose None as your payment method.
So please, do it before you leave.
The same holds true for at least a bit.
Once you change that country and everything is kosher with your Apple ID information, you can change your payment information back to None.
Is Apple Waiting for a Payment?
Finally, if you owe Apple any money, you cannot change your payment method to None. Pay those debts first and only then can you select None as your payment type.
To see if there’s anything due, take a look at your purchase history.
For iPhone, iPad, and iPod
- Open Settings > Apple ID > iTunes & App Store
- Tap your Apple ID > View Apple ID
- Sign in if required
For Macs and Windows
- Open the Music app or iTunes
- Choose Account > View My Account
- Next to Most Recent Purchase, choose to see all
Not sure if it’s correct?
Choose Total Billed or Billing Info button to see the details of your orders.
Once you figure out what’s owed, clear that debt and then change your payment info to None .
If you still aren’t getting None as a payment option, consider linking another type of payment to your account.
Instead of a credit card, use PayPal (if applicable), an iTunes or Apple Music Gift Card, even mobile phone billing (again, if applicable.)
Mobile phone billing is an excellent option for folks with carriers supporting it.
Mobile Phone Billing is a nice option in that it allows you to pay for your iTunes/Music Store, App Store, and Books Store purchases and your Apple Music membership through your carrier’s monthly mobile phone bill.
Unfortunately, it’s not available everywhere, including the US, UK, India, Mexico, Australia or Canada.
But is it available in most of Europe, Japan, and parts of South Asia. Tap here for more on mobile phone billing .
So for folks that don’t have a credit card or don’t want to use them, there are these options as well.
So next time there’s no none option when setting up Apple ID for yourself or a friend/family member, you’ll know what to do.
Luckily, most of these things are readily taken care of, so it’s pretty simple to get that None option on our default Apple ID account.
For folks on a tight budget that worry about unexpected expenses, removing payment options helps keep budgets on track.
And for those of us that share our iDevices with our kids or others, this method prevents those surprise expenses!
